“What a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

The funicular railway up the side of the pic du jer is like walking back in time, the whole place feels very victorian!

The ride to the summet is actually quite quick (not that I timed it) and the carriage was filled with people of every age and nationality (and it was not a pilgrimage week).

A litle expensive, but worth doing once.

TIP: the crepe myrtilles (bilberry pancakes) are worth trying.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

The charming little train will take you up the mountains (56% average ! )
Amazing views over the pyrénees; panoramic views like i've never seen before!
you can even follow a small hiking pad up; to some kind of cross and look-out post!
We visited le Pic du Jer around 16h-17h; and we had an amazing time!

“Funiculaire Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

If you want a good view of the town of Lourdes & a view of the Pyrenees i suggest a trip on the Funiculaire railway to the summit of the Pic Du Jur. You will be able to take some quite stunning photographs here and for those brave enough get a one-way ticket & take your bike for the descent down the mountain bike trail! A worthwhile reasonably priced excursion.
